January’s Paper Pumpkin Kit, Sending Hearts, has an adorable snail, so I HAD to create an “alternative”  using the word “mail.” If you missed out on this month’s kit, snails are available in the Snailed It Bundle, which you can see in my Product List below.

Snail Mail


First, I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die to give a scalloped edge to the mailbox, art piece, from the kit.  Then, I attached it with Dimensionals to the card base from the kit. 


Next, I cut a 1″ strip from another card base, adhered it to a 1″ strip of  a Foam Adhesive Sheet, and used the Playful Alphabet Dies for cutting. 

Now, for the focal point, the cute snail. I stamped him in Memento Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and colored him with Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.

After cutting, I peeled the backs from the Foam Adhesive Sheet, and attached the snail and “MAIL.”


Not only do the  Paper Pumpkin kits have nice, thick, card bases, they also include envelopes, so my card is ready to send.
